Weigh-In #12

Salam and welcome to the Twelfth Weigh in!

Begining: 108 kilos | 240 lbs

Weigh in: 78 kilos | 173 lbs

Loss of: 4 kilos | 9 lbs

Total Loss: 30 kilos | 66.6 lbs

Goal of: 70 kilos | 155 lbs

This past month of May has been the best ever!  It took sooo long to get down to below 80 and then it fluctuated for days at 79.5 and 80 kilos. Ugh! Finally the day of the weigh in it plopped down to 78!!! WOO HOOO!!!  OMG I can’t believe I’ve gotten this far and it hasn’t really been that hard looking back at it.  It seems loosing weight is more about what you eat and how you eat it than constant exercize.  I’m still afraid that If i incorporate too much exersize I’ll burn out and then stop loosing weight but the time has come for me to get seriously sweaty.  I took a fast walk up to the mall the other day and it was 8:30pm at night and still so hot that when I got there the sweat was dripping down my back and seeping through my Abaya.  I had to go directly to the ice rink area to cool off.  Unfortionatly my face has a natural red hue and when i exersize it turns bright red so only Allah knew what people were thinking.  i cooled off quickly and luckily not smelly lol.  It was great though.

It has become obvisou that all dieting with little exercize has a bg detrement to the body.  My skin is sagging and not looking so great in it’s deflated baloon shape.  (dare I say it almost looked better with the fat in it?) But Hubby agrees that I’m looking better and he’s happy! And I’m super happy.  I look in the mirror now and I can see a body really forming now.  i can see with a little toning how I might actaully get to a really nice shape someday.  So here’s to reaching the 75 mark by the next month and insha’Allah more!  I really can’t beleive I’ve gotten this low!  I had a friend long agowho couldn’t get past 83 kilos and I thought wow I’ll never be as thin as her, NOW I AM and it doesn’t feel like it yet but I am there.  The scales are not lying!  Wow I’m so Thrilled I might even go work up a sweat tonight.

Thanks for those that are reading this and wishing me well and I wish all of you well too and I hope that my words inspire you to help yourselves.  Never accept anything less than your best.  I can’t beleive I used to accept and resign myself to being overweight “forever”.

    Congrats on your weight loss! It’s amazing isn’t it when you get near the vicinity of where you have been dreaming about for years? Losing weight is hard, but oh so worth the effort. I had to stop myself from jumping on the scale everyday. Insha’Allah, you get to that 155 that you are aiming for. I’m pretty tall(5’10), so that would make me look like a walking skeleton, but 175 should do it for me and I have 21 more pounds to go.
